Saturday May 6th was Free Comic Book Day 2017. I happen to be in a bookstore that was giving away some comics and had some on clearance. I picked up the free Star Trek one set in The Next Generation world and this one that takes place after the last movie releases on the Kelvin timeline with the new cast setting off for life post-Enterprise. I’m not much of a comic reader but I enjoyed this so much that I can’t wait to get my hand on the next five copies to find out what happens next. I’m not in a big rush, however, so I might check the local stores first before I download them all from the publisher’s website. I wouldn’t mind having physical copies of these but will settle for digital.
The story was quite good, the graphics a little less. I’m reading it for plot so it didn’t bother me that some of the characters looked a bit off, Uhura being the lest resembling the current actor portraying the character. Major cliffhanger at the end that sucked me in and frustrated me to no end that the comic was only 22 pages long. So it looks like I might be a new convert to these graphic novels even if it is just the Star Trek ones.
My Rating: 5 Stars
